Netanyahu claims tax exemption for all expenses in his private home — report

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claims that all expenses at his private home in Caesarea are related to fulfilling his duties in office, and should therefore be exempt from taxes, Channel 13 reports.

The Tax Authority had requested information on which expenses in the home were for Netanyahu fulfilling his role as prime minister, to which Netanyahu staffer Asher Hayun replied that it was all of them.

The government informed the Supreme Court three years ago that all taxes on expenses in Netanyahu’s private home related to his job would be paid for by the state, the report said. This includes, apparently, fixing window blinds, the report says.

The Prime Minister’s Office denied the report, and said all expenses were approved by the premier’s accountant and legal adviser.
